Indian River Lakes Conservancy
- New York
The Indian River and the 18 lakes within its watershed occupy an extraordinary landscape of rocky, wooded uplands and teeming wetlands, lakes, and streams. Sitting astride the rugged, geologic backbone of the Frontenac Arch connecting the Adirondacks to Algonquin Park in Canada, the Indian River Lakes and neighboring Thousand Islands share a vital confluence of pathways for migratory birds and one of the most diverse habitats for wildlife in the northeast. The Indian River Lakes Conservancy was created in 1998 to preserve, protect, and encourage the sustainable management of this uniquely valuable watershed for the benefit and enrichment of future generations. This remains its abiding purpose and commitment.
